Summary

 

Mathematics 2 - CENG95011

Aims

This module covers key mathematical concepts and methods that the students will apply in other chemical engineering modules. The topics include probability and statistics (applied to reliability engineering and analysis of lab data), vector calculus and partial differential equations (applied to fundamental problems in fluid mechanics and heat and mass transfer, such as the Navier-Stokes equations).

Role

Lecturer

Modelling of Biological Systems - CENG97022

Aims

 This course is offered as an option in the 4th year of the undergraduate programme, as well as the MSc programme . Specifically, this module aims to interlink the biological principles of cellular physiology (in normal and diseased states) with the mathematical tools required for their analysis and modelling. This course links with knowledge acquired in the “Fundamentals of Biotechnology” and “Dynamic Behaviour of Process Systems” modules. The course presents both relevant background biological knowledge, as well as modelling tools and approaches, illustrated in a range of topics. It is especially relevant to students with interests in Biomedical or Biological Engineering, as well as students with interests in systems engineering, or modelling in general.

Transfer Processes 1 - CENG40004

Aims

The aim of this course is: (i) to explain the behaviour and properties of fluids (static and dynamic), solve problems involving incompressible flows, and to apply these basic principles in flow measurements and other flow (e.g. pipe) related problems, and (ii) to develop a basic understanding of conductive, diffusion and convective heat and mass transport, emphasizing first principles analysis, and apply it to a broad range of contexts.
